Where gravel is concerned, there are no emergencies.

Or the weight?

Different colours suggest different rock types, so they might have to be sourced from different locations, and availabilty could affect the price.
Also, some colours might be in greater demand than others, so again, the price could be affected by that.
- Rubies and emeralds are just impure diamonds, which are all just squished coal - all have different prices to each other.

Different colours imply different chemical compositions, so yes it would affect the weight, at least, but probably on a scale not detectable at your local Sexy-gravels emporium.

Impressive reasoning there alloydog, however the reality of the matter is that the most expensive colour is the one which someone's better half decides she likes best :)

not by a long chalk, rhakios pointed to "oi 1sf (troll)" which runs to 8 pages of pointless drivel ;-)
